First off I would like to say hello as Im new to this forum and to the Arduino uC.
I did a search both on the forum and online to find out if and how to control the uC using the serial monitor and USB.
Basically i would like to be able to press a key on my keyboard to turn on an LED and another key to turn it off. I tried using the Serial.begin/serial.read combination but no response from the arduino. I can see it receives the data since the RX flashes but it doesn't respond to the specific keys.
Any ideas or where I could find some more info
